Boomerang, new BET series executively produced by Lena Waithe & Halle Berry
 

 

“There’s a thing where you’re seeing dope black shows that are not on BET,” Lena Waithe, an actress who is the executive producer of “Boomerang,” said at the series’ premiere Saturday. “And that time has come to an end.”

The series is based on the 1992 romantic-comedy movie “Boomerang,” starring Eddie Murphy as Marcus Graham and Halle Berry as Angela Lewis, two young black advertising professionals living and loving in New York City. The womanizing Graham gets a taste of his own medicine when Jacqueline Broyer (Robin Givens) becomes his boss. The relationships transform and Graham becomes conflicted about his feelings toward Jacqueline and Angela.
The BET series picks up after Marcus and Angela get married, start their own ad agency and have a daughter, Simone (Tetona Jackson), who becomes involved with Jacqueline's son, Bryson (Tequan Richmond). Simone and Bryson lead the new series, which debuts on BET on Feb. 12. (Berry also serves as executive producer.)


In the first two episodes, Simone, who works for her father at the Graham Agency, wants to branch out on her own, while Bryson wants to move beyond his mother’s shadow so he can pursue his own dreams. There is a "will-they-or-won't-they" sense of anticipation on whether they will fall for each other like Angela and Marcus did, giving audiences a good reason to keep tuning in for the 10-episode series.







Do y'all think that this show will live up to the greatness of the original 1992 film or will be some bullsh*t?

All we have to do, as viewers and fans of the original production...














Is totally forget about the original production.

Gotta treat it like it's the 1st time which is gonna be tremendously difficult as I STILL frequently watch that movie.

He wrote the original story for the movie and produced it. He probably getting a cut. Being smart not putting his name on it in case it's trash.

Based on the trailer, this is a hard pass for me. Like @ said, this has too much of a millennial feel to it, and I find productions aimed at millennials to be highly annoying even though I'm technically a millennial myself (born in 1983).

I like Lena's other series The Chi and will be renewing my Showtime subscription when the second season drops this spring, but she should have taken some notes from She's Gotta Have It. That's a good example of a TV series adapted from a 1986 movie that got it right. Just reimagine the original plot in present day while keeping true to the original theme.

I’ll give it a try but this just kinda screams “try too hard”. And why even call it boomerang? Hell better off calling it Living Single.

I don't know how many people watched the From Dusk Till Dawn TV show. But, that was another one that showed how to adapt a movie. The whole first season was the plot of the movie fleshed out with more details. Once they got past that, they were able to extend the story into new territory in the next two seasons.

Probably hit up Halle who later hit up Eddie who wrote it and owns part of the original movie and Eddie probably agreed and will receive a check from it for writing the original storyline.

Yeah the fact that BET is behind this added with the storyline having no resemblance to the original is just offsetting from the jump. As mentioned earlier ‘She’s gotta have it’ is a rare example of it done right. Will watch first episode to confirm my beliefs.
